Performance Art & Lost Love…

An incredible video from Marina Abramović’s 2010 Moma Exhibit of ‘The Artist is Present’, whereby the artist would have some deeply quiet 1 minute ‘share & stare time’ with anyone that sat down across from her. James Franco was a former guest and in this video Marina’s ex lover Ulay shows up unexpectedly…


Marina & Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. They are reunited in this video decades later. Press play and expect the water works to flow. Brings up the question if we ever really let go fully of ex loves?
